2012 Talladega Family Reunion; Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals
Linda Vaughn and First Production Talladega
I just returned from what had to be one of the best Car Shows I have ever attended. Unfortunately, Katrina could not make this show since she is recuperating from hip surgery but wants everyone to know she won’t miss another one.
To start with the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals held in Chicago every year is one terrific show. The quantity and quality of the cars on display is different every year and beyond exceptional. There are judged and non-judged cars on display. To give you an example of what was there is a conversation I overheard from a couple of participants. It went something like this. I got docked one point by the Judges because I had the wrong air filter; mine had triangle mesh and I was supposed to have square mesh!
There were over 500 of the best muscle cars/Corvettes in the Country. However, the stars of the show (in my opinion and many others) were the Aero Cars. Although we Blue Oval guys were having our 2012 Talladega Family Reunion within the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals we were happy to share the spot light with our NASCAR nemesis from MOPAR. It was all in good fun and we had a great time with everyone there. There were many familiar faces and like always several new friends to meet. Although we had a great turn out of approximately 14 Ford products there were no Spoilers or Dan Gurney cars present and we were out numbered by MOPARS 2 to 1. I guess that just goes to show you whose cars are the rarest!
This Reunion would not have been possible without all the very hard work of Jason Thompson. He really out did himself this year and deserves a thank you from everyone who was there.
Here are just a few of the great cars in our display area. If you would like to see more of the entire show just hop over to our sister site at www.LegendaryCollectorCars.com.
We will also be posting a video of the cars in a few days.
Wing envy, “My Wing is bigger than yours!”
Jason’t Car went through a very thorough inspection process and came out the other end with a Legend Certification! Congratulations to Jason and Clarence for a job well done!
